Constructivist is common term used for facilitation. Taking the constructivist approach is the idea that a teacher scaffold, circle the classroom to ensure that students are working as expected. The teacher also provide direction to students to keep them on task. The class is more student centered that teacher centered, meaning student take responsibility for own learning. Small group learning is also another means where peer sharing reinforces learning.
Some skeptics believe that the constructivist approach consumes time waiting for students to make discovery on their own, while a teacher direct involvement reduces the amount of trial and errors that student will make before successfully arriving with answers.

I grew up in the beautiful island of Saint Lucia. Migrated to Toronto Canada since 1988 and has resided in Toronto ever since. I studied at Seneca College and graduated with a Diploma in General Arts and Science (GAS). Afterward, I started an under graduate at University of Toronto majoring in English. I am still still registered as a Woodsworth Student. I went on to pursue a degree in Adult Education at Brock University where I graduated in 2009. Now I am presently a Niagara University student enrolled in the Teacher Education program (BPS).
I currently work as a Teacher's Assistant at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). I am also actively working as a Security Guard, and I also work as a Sales Associate at the Bay occasionally.
